. >> the largest possible deal. >>chris: the president wants to go big so why are the numbers going down? welcome, everyone, i am here for neil cavuto in "your world." a new round of debt talks get under way at the white house but it is not all smiles. because the president's listen is not looking so grand. we have gone from talk of $2 trillion in cuts to $1.7 trillion and now closer to $1.5 trillion. and there is in guarantee that money won't go lower as the talks drag on. utah republican senator lee thinks we need to go back but $1.5 trillion in cuts spread out over ten years is that going big? >>guest: no, in the big at all. i am not sure it is going anywhere. one congress cannot bind another congress. so no matter how big the cuts are, if they are stretched out over 10 years and not accompanied by a constitutional amendment we have no guarantee they will be followed. >>chris: do you get a sense both sides are trying to get a deal and making it small enough to be palatable because the democrats and the administration will not make a big deal without tax increases, so both will take small incre
. that means, the big deal. this is the moment of opportunity. this is the window that people have been waiting for, for sometime. where both parties can sit down and resolve this problem, once and for all. we know what the problems are. we spend too much. the president will not get serious about cutting spending. >> greta: there's been e-mails back and forth, yesterday money the media that the president got up and marched off and senator harry reid on the floor refers to leader cantor as childish. is that what has deteriorated to a bit of name calling? >> i think the president was frustrated yesterday. everyone of us around the take are frustrated. the president got frustrated and left abruptly. >> greta: appropriately or inappropriately? >> i think it was fine. i think he decided the meeting was over and go up and left. >> greta: was there any indication the meet something over, we'll talk tomorrow or was it just i'm out of here? >> we had already discussed meeting today. the president is frustrated. my goodness, the rest of us are frustrated too. i've been pushing the president all year to a
that is not the whole story? >>guest: you are right. people forget, and i forgot that obamacare, the big health care reform bill had half a trillion of new taxes over the next 10 years including tax on health insurance companies on investment income and hospitals and pharmacy companies and on employers so it is a major tax increase, the biggest ever in the last 25 years. people forgot about it so when democrats say to make it balances we need a tax increase, what we wrote today, didn't you just pass a big tax increase last year? you want $1 trillion increase on top of that? >> and so many of the tax increases do not come online until years down the road, so, although it was passed, and you think you may not have been slapped with it yet, in 2013 and 2015 and 2018 you will be. >>guest: gentleman that is why people for got. they did not take place until 20 thin or 2014 and some in 2018 for the health care plan. the question we have to ask, then, can the economy really get out of the rut with 9.2 percent unemployment and 14 million unemployed with $500 billion tax increase already in the works and, the
't sound like. they did have a big win tuesday with cut, cap and balance. still no debt deal on the table. the clock seems to be ticking very fast. our next guest is pointing the finger at president obama, calling the president clever and slick. what does he mean? we asked karl rove. nice to see you. >> great to see you. >> greta: in add's "wall street journal", you described the president's press conference a week ago you said it was a b -- buff foe performance. i telecommunication a tough of sarcasm, tell me what you mean? >> i mean ironic. it is not sarcastic, i'm being ironic. the president gave an outstanding theatrical performance. he started off by blaming others. we expected them to blame bush. he also blamed the democratic congress. saying they had runaway with the credit card. they were just doing what he was telling them to do. he insisted that others solve the problem. he said within 24 to 46 hours i demand congress give me a plan. he said the worst alternative to come out of this would be if we raise the debt ceiling without taking any steps to rein in spending or reduce the
to is saying, look, we took a big bet on this debt ceiling thing opening to use the mefrj to make the president agree to spending cuts. what house republicans want. it's not working. everything he wants meager spending reform, wants higher taxes or he's saying he seems to be willing to go all the the way to shut down default. lets he' step back and let him take control of this and consequences of the action of not dealing with real spending reform. >> paul: dan, sellout. is this giving up too easily as a lot of right wing,are saying? >> no, i don't think so, paul. i think they overestimated their ability to leverage the president into big spending cuts. somehow, it seems to me, behind all this have is a misunderstanding about the power of the presidency, it is vast and getting into a big fight over big spending cuts and let's make it clear here, we're talking about reforming entitlement spending, medicare, medicaid spending to try to get into a debt limit negotiation and force the president of the united states to reform medicare if he doesn't want to i think is fruitless and they discovered th
with you. senator johnson from wisconsin. debt talks breakdown and will big ben step up with the big cash? bernanke suggesting he is ready for pump more stimulus into the economy if needed and that had stocks soaring early in the day and the dow jones industrial average having trouble holding on to the gains finishing up just 45 points. the fox business network is keeping track of it all. we lost all the gains we had early in the day. >>guest: but investors will take what they can get because there we saw the sell off later if the session we did post gains and that snapped a three day losing streak for the stock market. so, the dow finishing up with a small gain and the s&p with a 4 point game and at 10:00 a.m., bernanke sat down before congress and in his testimony heed laid out the open door for a possible qe3, the government bond buying program which is looked at as stimulus for the markets and off to the races and the market, as you said, rallied 150 points early in the session, but, this is still a lot of concern about the debt crisis going on overseas and it was another downgrade
of the need for a course correction. but weeks of negotiations have shown his commitment to big government is simply too great to lead to the kind of long-term reforms we need. >> reporter: reid says lawmakers must find a solution. >> we'll stay in session every day, saturday and sunday until congress passes legislation to prevent the united states from defaulting on negotiation. >> reporter: in chicago, key ally expressed support for the mcconnell-reid plan. >> more work to be done. joint committee can tackle it but it's responsible way out of the crisis. >> reporter: lindsey graham favors constitutional amendment but there isn't enough support in the senate. >> we have the people behind us. 72% of the american people want balanced budget. >> reporter: the president called for shared sacrifice. >> i am still pushing for to us achieve a big deal. but what i said to the group is if we can't do the biggest deal possible, then let's still be ambitious. let's still try to at least get a down payment on deficit reduction. >> reporter: but the cochair of the president's own deficit commission ha
of the problem we face as a nation. i'm a big supporter of cut, cap and balance. we had a historic vote last week that i believe was one much the most powerful votes for a taxpayer and to move to a different position wasn't some where i could go. no, it wasn't difficult. >> greta: it had some wording about a balanced budget. that didn't satisfy you? >> that was after $900 billion released and credit extended as a nation. we were saying you can have 900 billion more dollars to spend but later we will consider a balanced budget amendment. my position is we need to discuss the reforms in place now today before we extend our credit limit any more. there were are cuts and savings. only $7 billion next year compared to $900 billion of credit being released and that is nothing. that is absolutely nothing. it is one fifth of one penny of what we spend each year is what we were going to say. >> greta: sitting on the house floor and you are voting no and speaker wants you you to vote yes on it. like bad vibes, you sort of want to get out the door? >> not really. >> greta: did you tell him yourself you were
with leaders in washington still bogged down in debt limit talks, some governors are making big policy strides and who is moving in the right direction and who has got it wrong? plus, school may be out, but school choice appears to be in. some good news from the front lines of education reform. and the war against girls, a closer look at a controversial new book that documents the increasing phenomenon of sex selection and the consequences of a world full of males. welcome to the journal editorial report. i'm paul gigot. the state of the state with leaders in washington still bogged down in debt limit talks, some governors are making real strides in the fight to balance their state budgets and others are falling into the same old tax and spend facts. wall street columnist, dan henninger and kim strassel and senior economics writer, steve moore. dan, this may be the most c consequence time, which states first, are making progress and what nr' doing. >> well, the state, i think, is making some of the most interesting progress in florida with the republican governor rick scott. rick scott came in
, the government owes me. how big a problem do you think that is? >> entitlements are narcotics. this is why the left loves to expand the entitlement program in america and they instituted a massive new program called obama care which is essentially socialized medicine. once people get aticted to the narcotic of the entitlement, social security, medicare, medicaid, we have a whole array of entitlements, you get addicted to it, it is difficult to take it away. >> bill: what is the government's responsibility in bad economic times to feed people through food stamps. they have explode. >> we have 47 million americans now on food stamps which is a record breaking number that is heart breaking. >> bill: is that a nasca narco. >> we is so many drk including the food programs and benefits for the poor. >> bill: is that a narcotic? >> i will tell you why. it creates a culture and pattern of victimization. >> most people want to work and do not want a handout. most people want to compete and be in the game. they don't want to sit back and have the government give them sufficient. a small percentage o
know they are all big boys. and i suspect that speaker boehner in a few minutes. again, can you see what we are waiting on, speaker boehner, we believe within minutes is going to come before cameras and microphones there in the pressroom in the house and give his response to the president's comments. i know they are big boys but the president did go after republicans, especially house republicans. and especially house tea party republicans in this session. does that make it harder to deal or do they just sort of -- >> yeah, probably. but i mean the president has been doing this all along. he did it more forcefully today than he has in the past. remember when he gave the speech at george washington university paul ryan who had pointed out a budget and risks about these things and the president went after him about it it's not the first time. i suspect it's not going to be the last. boehner has a difficult job but simple task. he needs to show up at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow morning that something that house republicans, 218 of them can agree on them. something that's long overdue. i was re
something big done. the president has made it clear he wants to do something substantial. >> sean: that was budget director lew talking about the debt negotiations. he says the president wants to do something substantial. we found out how hollow that pledge is. the administration announced if the republicans cut cap and balance pledge were to pass the house and senate, president crybaby would veto this the plan gaining momentum tackles america's fiscal crisis making mandatory spending reductions that would reduce the deficit, cap spending at 18% of the gdp and send to the states a balanced budget amendment to the u.s. constitution. those measures would prevent this president from pursuing his reckless tax and spend agenda, which explains why he's opposed to it. joining me with his take south carolina senator lindsey graham. how are you? >> good, thanks for having me. >> sean: it is simple to me. this is the moment of truth. they election in 2010, the biggest mid term in 70 years. i'll quote president obama, we won, conservatives won. cut, cap and balance, do you support it? >> tot
him and it's still separated by advocates of big spending the wonderful things government should do. >> it's a project of national significance. we've got no projects on the menu right now and we have to figure out if we are still a country this that can think this big. >> john: i think the advocates of big spending are winning. most people think that government has to control economies. >> here we have the examples of the opposite. for the current situation this was caused by the free market when you have a fannie and freddie and regulations and federal reserve pumping in with cheap credit, the best thing is five investment props properties and have no job. that is crony capitalism at its worst. >> john: thank you. the election season is under way and now we're going to get those ugly, nasty campaign ads. worse than ever i'm told. but that is myth, too. do you want to see a really nasty campaign mudslinging? that is next. hey, the new guy is loaded with protein! really? 25 grams of protein. what do we have? all four of us, together? 24. he's low fat, too, and has 5 grams of sugars.
at this hour? that is the big question that people want the answer to. the lawyers were successful disguising where she went in the overnight hours. even the press not able to keep up with her. cameras shooting this video of casey anthony walking out of the front doors of the orange county jail at 12:11. wearing pink me low shirt, hair in a bun and the primary defense attorney jose baez right by her side. they got in a motorcade, a gray suburban, a cream colored tahoe and white follow-car and drove directly from the location to a bank of of america building in downtown orlando, not far from here, where her other attorney has an office. they went in covered parking garage and pulled a bait and switch. the suv never emerged from the parking garage, but others cars did and it's not clear which one that casey anthony was in. we can tell you around the same time there was police activity across town at a private airport. a private plane was fuelled up and ready to go on the runway, but nobody saw casey anthony boarding the aircraft. officials telling us it was scheduled to carry golfers vacationin
tomorrow night, and that's on big fox. >>shepard: and 23 minutes past 3:00 on wall street, a lot of this is about our debt crisis in the united states and more so in europe where italy has joined "we're in trouble crowd," the markets do not like it and the dow jones industrial average is off considerably 1.4 percent with just about 37 minutes left in the trading day. a major security concern across the river from new york city, at newark, new jersey, at the lebanonty international airport after a crew found a stun gun stuffed in the back pocket of a seat. though discovered the weapon after the jet landed with 96 passengers on the plane were fine and off the plane. and an certify file spokesman says it does not look as if the stun gun was meant to be used in an attack but how did it get past airport security. they were probably very carefully watching out for your 3.2 ounce bottle of conditioner. and now, live from the new york city news room. what are the authorities saying? >>guest: a remarkable story. and the f.b.i. leading the investigation into what does appear to be a fully
afternoon if he chooses and possibly friday. a big day for thursday morning. but at 2:15, after deliberating nine hours the jury bought what baez said during the closing argument. his clients, casey anthony could be a lawyer but she is not a murderer. >> the first-degree murder, we find the defendant not guilty, dated on the 5th day of july, 2011. and the charge of aggravated child abuse, verdict of count two, we the jury find the defendant not guilty, so say we all, in orlando, orange county, florida, 5th day of july. and as to the charge of aggravated manslaughter of a child, verdicts as to count three we fine the defendant not guilty. phil: huge tears from the eyes of casey an don't and she started to break into smiles, large smiles, like you have not seen her smile for the past three years. not publicly on camera. not a big smile but, today, an absolute celebration full of emotion, full of tears, you can see the tones -- attorneys congratulating contrasted to the prosecution table as the lead prosecutor and her two cocounsel all looked ashen in utter disbelief that despite all of the for
on this planet as we know it today. that is a very big deal. chris stirewalt joins me, fox news digital politics editor, i should say. so, chris, how long do we have on the planet, life as we know it? what's your take? >> i'm not buying anymore green bananas. [laughter] it sounds like we're headed into real trouble, doesn't it? martha: it sure does. >> well, look, the speaker -- the former speaker, pelosi, now the minority leader in the house demonstrates that before you get to the end on something like this, everybody has to say something totally over the top, and now she's taking her turn. the truth of the matter is we're probably closer now to a deal and closer now to a bipartisan resolution than we ever have been because as house republicans start to saddle up behind john boehner's plan getting over their grumbling about the fact that it doesn't give them everything that they want, it brings us closer to the final vehicle which will get republican and democratic support in the senate and move us on to an increase in the debt ceiling and some kind of a deal. martha: yeah. you know, there are
in the lower righthand corner, you choose, what do you want to see? this very big baby, a newborn giraffe? the most efficient government building in america? that's choice number two. and number three, los angeles guy who finds a way to put hundreds of gallons of gas in his tank, but well, he could go to jail for what he did. we'll tell you about it, if it's the one you pick. your must-see moment of the day. you vote, foxnews.com, happening now, it's your other news source. julie: a fox news alert for you and a power plant implosion that we are awaiting in frisco, texas, this power plant has served texas for 50 years and it will come crumbling down just minutes from now, it is the retired colon power plant in frisco. as soon as that happens, we'll bring you that amazing picture. we never get sick of implosions. jon: what goes up must come down. julie: there you go, live tv for you! jon: right now a stunning turnaround in the sexual assault case against dominic strauss-kahn, prosecutors agreeing to free the former chief of the international monetary fund on his own reconnaissance, that mea
quarter on g.d.p. growth, and that is the debate on wall street. >> i will show the big board again if we can, a lot of you will look at this and say 200 points because washington is not doing anything, that is part but it is not the majority of what is happening here. a lot of this is having to do with concerns of slow down is happening and we could revisit a serious slow down, if not a double dip, companies lime emerson saying things have turned south. i am not dismissing what is beginning on in washington but for wall street the front burner issue is the concern of the double dip. that is the reality. and, then, there is this. (inaudible) fabio challenges you at 9:00 a.m. on the internet. >>neil: taking on the old spice guy and now, he is responding. >> i accept your challenge. >>neil: if you think that is spicy enter another, and we have the real spice, live from washington. me. we are ear all over the spicy hot debt battle with some of the biggest names in the business kicking off at 4:00 p.m. with mark levin and many others, the big budget brawl continues, alive this weekend on satu
scanners, that was big concern of people and also for some of the privacy advocates. jon? jon: yeah. and some of our chatters are wondering when this is going to hit the consumer market, you know, can i buy one of these things and scan anybody i want to? >> reporter: you know what, interesting? facebook is looking at it and google, also, to allow you to take a picture of someone and do an immediate google search to get any other information on them. so your chatters are up to speed, jon. jon: that is a brave new world. jamie colby, thank you. >> reporter: take care. jenna: breaking news of the day, and we have more big stories throughout the hour including a big rule anything the case of the former police sergeant who keeps losing wyomings. what -- wives. the case of drew peterson and how it could impact his murder trial. >>> also house speaker john boehner reworking his debt deal. this as the clock ticks closer to that default deadline. six days away, can a deal be struck in time? we'll go in depth just ahead.   you could save a bundle with geico's multi-policy discount. geic
into a big thing. the president is saying, you must have a deal within 24 to 36 hours. mr. president, what is your deal? will you pro offer a deal. write it up, put it on a couple pieces of paper and offer it. instead he's saying, cave. give me all the taxes i want. and give me as little restraint on spending as i want. and don't ever count on me to offer a plan. >> sean: some good news today. i was not that happy with senator mccon fell's proposal. but, today -- today he came out as a co-sponsor in the senate of cut, cap and balance. my take is, strategically this is a bit of a chess game many you are great at strategy. why not the house republicans pass, cut, cap and balance send it to the senate, let's see was? >> we gotta have movement. mcconnell is a crafty inside operator. his first offer is never his final offer. i was looking at not what he was suggesting specifically, but the direction. the direction of it was to change the dynamic. mr. president, where is your plan? his proposal required the president to offer a plan. second, it acknowledged we needed to get this thing done. it c
't get licensing for all sorts of things like fishing and what not be, and it's a big recreational state. it cost the state millions in be lost revenue from lottery sales, tax audits, park fees and licensing fees, so on and so forth, but now they can go ahead. some state officials now saying, though, it may take some time to get programs back up and running so they can be moneymakers again for the state. and those 22,000 state employees can go back to work, but it's kind of a phase-in situation. so the big headline in all of this is the longest-running state shutdown in a decade in this country now has come to a close with the governor making an agreement with leading republicans in the state of minnesota. now back to you guys. jenna: hi, everybody, so glad you're joining us today, i'm jenna lee. jon: and i'm jon scott. we are here in the fox newsroom and "happening now," brand new numbers in the race for the white house. "the wall street journal" poll shows tea party favorite michele bachmann is surging. jenna: she's not the national leader, though, that title goes to mitt romney. jon:
raise the debt limit. then he asked for big tax increases. we got rid of the tax increases. now we have a bill that does what hee we said it should do, cuttings more than it raises the debt limit by. is it perfect? no. is it as much as we proposed? no. this doesn't do that. but it gets us down the right path. it's cuts we can bank right now, it's a step in the right direction. so i think it's a good step in the right direction. >> it has to get 217 votes. have you a rowdy freshmen crowd who ran on the promise of a balanced budget amendment. and the balanced budget amendment is not in the boehner bill. how do you get enough of them to get to your 217 mark and have them go home and face their voters where they promised a balanced budget amendment? >> we have a vote on the balanced budget amendment. >> separate? >> that was always the case. the second thing, cut, cap and balance had to be separate from the bill. >> balanced budget amendment. >> that's right, excuse me. this requires that the senate vote on a balanced budget amendment. we never had the assurances we could even get a vote on
sign of relief? "fox & friends" starts right now. >>dave: good saturday, everyone, a big news saturday. we thought the heat would be the big story. but anything but. a very serious matter. good to have you here for alisyn. >> all hell breaking loose in many parts of the world including in norway. >> we have new information of the shooting in the shotting massacre and bombing that happened hours apart in norway. >> this as the death toll from the attacks has gone up to 91. and greg is leave in london. greg? >>greg: we have been tracking this story through the night and hour by hour it is worse and worse and the words, the gunman as he shot the victims "you all must die," describing the scene, the prime minister, he turned paradise into hell. and now the events of the shocking attack right now. police now say that 84 people were killed on the island 20 miles from the capital of norway, one of the worst mass shooting sprees in history. the gunman was dressed as a policeman calling teens to come closer and then tee towns the guns on him, machine guns, rifles and pistols and the kids ran, h
. no we won't. we have money to pay it, pay it take that issue off the take. here's the big issue, the president doesn't want to have to be confronted with priorities in spending. because he has a lot of chutzpah. he spent a trillion on stimulus, it failed. he spent a trillion and a half every year on deficits, they are his. also obamacare trillions of dollars this is his spending. he's gotta own it and deal with it. >> greta: i think the president genuinely wants to make sure people don't get hurt. >> we all do. we all do. >> greta: i don't think he's necessarily playing politics some would say he worries if we take some money out of this program it is going to hurt somebody, they all have costs every time we take has costs. >> my point was, this president has added trillions of dollars. we wouldn't be in this crisis right now if he wouldn't have spent that trillion on stimulus, trillion and a half more than he should have on the budget and trillions more on obamacare. but for those trillions in spending, we wouldn't be in this mess. we would still be in a bad spot, nowhere near
it into the ground or how he moved it. there was no tape on it. the big issue was there was a total failure to find any forensic evidence whatsoever on the tape. more importantly f you remember the only --, if you remember, the own partial profile of dna that was detected absolutely excluded casey. and also excluded caylee from something contact with that tape. that was a mystery. it has not and never will be solved, i suppose. >> greta: i talked to the prosecutor and i asked him, she disappeared or died in june there was a call in august by the meter reader. the remains were found in december. i asked him if the remains had been found in august when the first call was made whether there would have been more forensic clouds which would have indicated cause of death. he -- he said even that was too late do you agree or not? >> i don't agree. possible, possible, possible. that's the case we had. the fact of the matter is, the child was alive june 16th. and was seen with the grandfather on the videotape. if the sheriff's department had done their job, i've always wondered why they couldn't do the slig
to rein in big government spending and prevent tax increases. >> the majority of the house has to approve spending and that's tremendous leverage. we should use it. >> a political analyst says it has an impact on how far g.o.p. speaker john boehner can go in debt negotiation. >> the existence of the freshmen linked creditability to john boehner when he says there are not enough votes for tax increase. >> reporter: president obama is also feeling the pressure from the left flank saying that social security and medicare may need modification to sustain them for the future generation. >> if there is a reasonable deal to be had on it, one i'm willing to pursue. >> that got a strong pushback from nancy pelosi and other liberals. >> today, the democratic women of congress have come together to send a clear message. we must protect medicare and social security. we will not support cuts. >> reporter: if there are cuts to the program in a final deal, it will be a tough sell to the president with the liberal base, which sees itself as cardigan of the entitlement. molly henneberg, fox news. >> shann
all across the country, and they have been hit with a big tax, many forced to close their doors and that is having far-reaching affects. we are going to explore that live with that story. patti ann: a new add campaign claims that milk can cure pms. some people not happy about who the ad is targeting. live with details on that. johnston harris is live at our.com wall. she has three hot videos. you get to choose which one. >> reporter: just above the stories you'll find that pms story about the milk. you have to check that out. after you vote in that poll then you have to decide which story you want to see. the choices for today, i love it when the viewers get a chance to say what they want, big, fuel tpheurbgt it's late but it's finally here and it goes a really long way without having to refuel and it holds a whole lot of people, do you want to see that, or do you want to see a suspect being walked down a hallway, this is in washington state, what happens as people take justice into their own hands, it's pretty unbelievable. remember there are cameras everywhere. and a two-heade
intend to have my voice heard. just won't be with a big megaphone. >> sean:7รง do you agree this particular primary is a little different than previous primaries? republicans seem to have historically pick the next person up this year seems to be a battle between a tea party candidate or establishment candidate is that a fair characterization? >> i think that's right. i think the old order is being dismembered. the democratic party is a coalition of communities around special interests. president obama was very effective in mobilizing support in the down fall of the democratic party around his candidacy being the organized principle of that.gr that's what he's going to try again. republicans are slower to move into the 21st century model. but, the old idea that it was someone's turn no longer is valid. >> sean: you have been very critical of president obama on one issue in particular. it came up again today. the fact that the president seems obsessed with braming your brother for all of the problems that exist -- with blaming your brother for all of the problems that exist.
need to be doing. we have this deadline looming. everybody agrees it would be a big mistake if we got to next tuesday and hadn't fixed this. in the best interests of the country, the american people we need to come together. it is going to require, in my view, a exitment on the part of democrats who -- a commitment on the part of democrats who so far have been unwilling to take on long term issues. >> greta: do you know of any democrat who said let's take on entitlements? >> i think most don't want to have that vote. >> greta: if you think entitlements a necessity, a strong structural change and the republicans say absolutely no, we are not going to vote for structural change that does put it at an impossible position, impasse. >> i think what this does, i don't like this honestly, we haven't passed a budget in 800 days. i think the american people look at this and say this is dysfunctional, broken. which is why we are talking this special commit think that would sit down. >> greta: we had the bowles simpson committee. the american people think fine, but you didn't pay attention to th
that the defense attorney brought out. and she focused in and brought the real big picture. and the real big picture is, what does the totality of the evidence show? it shows a girl that did not like her life. had two options. one option was to be a mom. or go back to her single life. she chose to sacrifice her baby. i think the jury will see the arguments of baez and what he is looking for is not acquittal but maybe one or two on the jury to decide with them so he can have a hang or hold out and possibly a hung jury. >>greg: the legal panel will be with us through the hour. plus, live updates from the courthouse in orlando and more on the closing arguments from both the prosecution and the defense. thanks to the venture card from capital one, we get double miles on every purchase, so me and my lads earned arip to san francisco twice as fast we get double miles every time we use our card... i'll take these two... ...no matter what we're buying. ...and all of those. and since double miles add up fast, we can bring the whole gang! it's hard to beat double miles! whoa dude.

-- none of your business. a big buzz about a gall up poll showing that president obama would be defeated by a generic republican by 8 points and leads any of the spectacular candidates that he is paired against. what does this mean? franklyy absolutely nothing. a poll in this point in time is where they are today and not in 15 months. voters will automatically vote democrat and some automatically vote republican. the election is going to be decided by independent voters in the middle, and they are a long way from making up their mines on the next election. they are struggling whether or not they are having a next paycheck. while i enjoy a good game of politics as much as the next guy, there is a time to campaign and then there is a time to govern. president and members of congress from both parties have had their fun politicing the debt ceiling and now time to govern and resolve it. i don't think the world will face armageddon over failure to set the debt limit. there would be affects. you wouldn't be able to visit the national parks and coon get a passport and airport lines for tsa coul
. the big question, though, is for the prosecution team, what did they do potentially wrong here, because they were certainly very confident in their case. here is lamar lawson. >> we're disappointed with the verdict today and surprised, because we know the facts, and we put in absolutely every piece of evidence that existed. our attorney did an exemplary job. i'm proud of them and i stand by their work. i never, ever criticize a jury. theirs is the task of deciding what to believe. >> reporter: the prosecutor also said that what really hampered the case was the frequent that -- fact that the decomposition, the six months it took to find caylee's remains, really hampered the prosecution because they lost so much crime scene evidence, fingerprints, perhaps they may have found on the duct tape and the laundry bag, phil. -- bill. bill: fel keating, thank you. alisyn has more. alisyn: we need to talk more about these jurors. they left immediately after the reading. remember this was after six weeks of being sequestered and finish of -- none of them wanted to talk about their momentous decisio
and have the economy of zimbabwe. it is a big problem. i don't know why anyone who isn't an elected republican can't talk seriously about social is security and medicare and medicaid. according to obama's own treasury secretary are going to consume within 10 years, 92 cents of every federal budget dollar. that isn't a system that can last. yet, a majority of americans say don't touch social security. don't touch medicare this is what the democrats are saying. that's why you keep having these -- remember rudd man and the concorde coalition? no elected politician, republican or democrat will talk about reforming social security. >> sean: we always get the tax increases, spending cuts, reagan never came, george her burt walker bush, they never come. the idea they are going to hand it over, it is not going to happen. -- you raised a more fundamental question why they need to stand strong here. that is, philosophically, we've become -- look what happens when they put austerity measures in place in europe. look at what happened to greece. if we don't do it now the pain is going to be grea
't have been surprised in one sense because he made such a big deal about meeting with our enemies in the campaign. you would have thought having been in office for 2 1/2 years he would have been sobered by events and made another decision this is inexplicable. why does the administration go out of its way to give legitimacy and credibility to the muslim brotherhood by announcing formal contacts? what is to be gained? except to advance the muslim brotherhood and make america look weak. it looks like we are the is up can't, please, can we -- we are the is up can't, please can we meet with you. there was nothing to be ginned. why the president did it now and it in such a public fashion is inexplicable. if he wanted contacts, off the stage. why make this an act that gives legitimacy to the muslim brotherhood? >> when our enemies tell us who they are, believe them. there is no mystery. they've openly stated their agenda is to islamize societies. to establish a global islamic caliphate. -- to destroy israel and expand sharia truth the west. it is not like we are trying to read tea leave
will this guy vote? he will tell us. and only us. look at the corner of wall and broad on the big board the dow jones industrial average down 6 2 1/2 points. we focus on the markets for good reason, we are led to believe they are sort of waiting to see what comes out of washington. but, are we making a mistake if we go the other way and conduct national policy, political long term debt policy based on the market? charles says "be careful." >>guest: be very, very careful. you have a couple of things going on. first the scare tactics that everyone is using in washington, you remember when the tarp vote did not go through and the dow jones industrial averages with down 700 points. do you want that to happen? president bush signed tarp into law october 3rd, 2008, march 9, the dow jones industrial average was off 4,000 points so that was not a panacea. unemployment got worse. our economy got worse. we have to be careful about worrying about the knee-jerk reaction. because they have said it so many times and because harry reid compared it to the great depression and armageddon there will be self self
she has in her possession at all times. her safety is a big concern of this jail. put the camera there, you can see just how secure this facility is. 74 people facing murder charges in this jail alone. these jails are usually built with more facilities for men and women because more machine are in jail than women. there's a men's side and a women's sigh. not luxurious by -- any means. lights out 10, 11:00 at night. it doesn't mean lights out. lights out means lights dimmed. 4:00, 5:00 in the morning the lights come back on. all night long people are watching her and every inmate. this is a short term facility. not designed to be where someone can live a long time. for that reason it is austere. most people incarcerated are anxious to get through the trial procedure and get to a prison should that be their fate. a prison generally is a better place to live, it is a long term facility, not short term. there's a big difference in terms of your cell. in terms of what you can do, interact with other people. this is simply to house, secure, probably she will have to go to court that gets her
position. that if big spending cuts are agreed upon the federal debt ceiling should be raised for the good of the nation. it's the same thing that happened three years ago when president bush told the country the economy was about to collapse because the financial industry was going under. some americans didn't believe that but all the evidence says it was true. that the feds had to bail out the financial industry and that's what happened. same boat, different year. you can imagine what the worldwide markets will do if the u.s.a. defaults on obligations in august. all of us will suffer economically because foreign investors would begin to pull their money out of america. the dollar would plummet along with stocks. so a deal must get done. but president obama is making a huge mistake in trying to raise taxes now. why bother with that? just campaign on your economic position, mr. president. and if you get reelected you can raise taxes later. on the g.o.p. side, we need tax reform desperately in this country. we need to raise more revenue in smart ways. perhaps a 1% national sales tax. that c
to plead guilty in the case. in box three, stunning images of a big cat on a rampage, a showdown between man and beast on video. all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b" first from fox at 3:00, new information on the mysterious deaths at the mansion in southern california. the son and the girlfriend of a powerful drug company executive, both dead, days apart after incidents at the sprawling san diego bay home. and now fox news has learned the millionaire executive at the center of this, jonah shacknai left the mansion for his other home in arizona. somebody found the body of his girlfriend hanging from a balcony last week with hands and feet bound. and now her sister reportedly says she doesn't believe that was a suicide. she said, come on, hands and feet bound and it's a suicide? she said the now dead girlfriend was a vibrant and loving person and would never do this, and probably couldn't. days earlier, his six-year-old son, max, fell down the stairs at mansion and he died. investigators and not rule out possibility that the two deaths are somehow connected
jones industrial average stock market especially the s&p stocks. these are the big boys on the block, the top 500. they issue dividends right now and the balance sheets look good and they are profitable and undervalued. that is good place to go. >>stuart: i heard going into the big name, big american-based multinational corporations, they are safe. but, if you put your money into a lost them over 10 years, you have gone nowhere and sometimes you have gone down. >>guest: well, of course, there is that element of risk. yet when you look at the companies right now they have already adjusted for the things in the marketplace right now. you are looking at emerging economies that could be slowing down. you are looking at the debt ceiling, the issues that are going on with that and you are looking at sovereign debt. and a lot of the big companies have already adjusted for that and so they are relatively cheap such as boeing and mcdonald's and caterpillar. >>stuart: you buy gold at $1,550 and big multicorporation stocks would you buy a bank cd and earn a miserable 1 percent and sleep safely?
, some real big news, actually, because speaker boehner, it seems, may have a plan that will come to fruition, before 4 p.m. this afternoon so that the asian markets aren't rattled and it will involve sort of a two pronged approach. >> yeah, but the most important part of the two step process clayton mentioned there's going to be a short-term extension involved and the democrats have objected to that, as you know, from the very beginning, the president, nancy pelosi, harry reid all three last night reiterating they will not support a short-term extension. so it appears we are playing with some serious fire on this sunday. >> what does john boehner do, comes up and hands over the paper work, they immediately say no. listen to this, thises what mitch mcconnell has to say about this. there is bipartisan agreement on the need to prevent fault and given the unprecedented size of the debt ceiling increase, the president is requesting, this is not an easy process. and the effort to prevent default while substantially reducing washington spending will continue. >> of course, all of the co
to be a big divide. how do you tweak that to make the two of them happy? that might be a tall order. i can't think what would make the tea party satisfied with this bill, but balanced budget amendment? >> right. there has within talk around here unconfirmed that that is the sweetener being added to the boehner bill, a balanced budget amendment. but really this is an extraordinary evening in an extraordinary episode, greta, one that political scientists will be studying for 50 years or more. we watch both divided government at its most dysfunctional. and a president who to many observers appears to be side lined for the time being as -- congressional leaders work behind closed doors to hammer this out and deep divisions whereby a powerful speaker john boehner is having difficulty coralling votes he needed. remember he lost 59 republican votes. you have this large freshman class, 80 members, a lot backed by the tea party and elected here to, on a promise of cutting spending and take one exyampem. tim scott from south carolina was one of two freshman for the first time ever given a seat at th
on and now the weather maps. big story the last couple of days has been a nonstory, tropical storm don became nothing, unfortunately. folks in texas hopes to get a big storm out of this and get some rain at least. the storm slowed up and they did not get the rain. across the eastern part of the country, across coastal areas, there was some rain but not too far inland but they will take anything they can get the entire state of texas is dealing with the worst drought they have ever had and now the radar, the eastern part of the country will deal with storms. it is hot. humid. we will see more storms this afternoon. texas unfortunately is not beginning to get much rain. in the northern plains, big storms, and some this afternoon, and they will be severe, keep that in mind, and across the west, we will continue to deal with storms cross the four corners. and now, everyone is excited about the state fair for the food and this year, those are doughnuts and a burger. and bacon. how is that for breakfast? take a bite. >> rick will be 20 pounds heavier by the end of the show. >> we will not be able t
are investigating. >> president obama, you have been a big supporter. >> i'm going to vote for him for his re-election in 2012. >> a bevy of hold stars once again funneling big money at the president's campaign. we will run down the list. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. captions by closed captioning services >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the future of the country hangs on the debt debate. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. on paper, the debt thing is boring. and many americans aren't paying attention. but the controversy will define the future of the u.s.a. on one side, president obama, the democratic party, want america to become an entitlement state that compels social justice. financially supporting americans who can't o. won't support themselves. >> on the other side, republicans want a lean mean economic machine. the g.o.p. doesn't much care about providing money to those who have not. the party wants to drastically cut government spending and promote private business to bolster the e
. they think in the long run it will be effective in a big debate like this. bret? >> bret: ed, thank you. stocks were again down today to close what was the worst week in a year. the dow dropped 97, the s&p 500 gave back 8 1/3, the nasdaq dropped 10. fuel to the fire in the debt ceiling debate. peter barnes breaks down the number. >> high gas prices and weak income gains for workers have the economy growing at its slowest six-month pace since the economic recovery began early last year. the government said today that gdp grew at just a 1.3% annual rate in the second quarter, well below expectations. but the shocker was a huge downward revision of the number for the first quarter. growth originally clocked in at 1.9%, but now the government says it grew at just .4 of a president. for the president, the numbers were too bad to ignore, even as he pressured republicans to cut a deal with him on the debt ceiling to help the econom >> on a day when we've been reminded how fragile the economy already is, this is one burden we can lift ourselves. we can end it with a simple vote. >> the administ
in history in terms of what we do with cut, cap and balance. we had a big disagreement last week over the mcconnell plan. today the president races out to your old podium. there's a new plan, hang on, six guys in a room. it is very frustrating to me that republicans are negotiating against themselves. they ought to be united supporting cut, cap and balance that is the best answer to the structural foundational problem fast we have in the economy. >> you are right in principle. cut, cap and balance does what you want it to do. but, it is not going to be a success. it is not going to go through. >> sean: why tkpwerb shea against yourself? >> i want a viable alternative to a downgrade of america's financial reputation. >> sean: moody's is saying it going to downgrade any way. s&p saying within maybe 90 days. >> cap -- >> cut, cap and balance doesn't go as far as the ryan budget went. the ryan budget was voted on unanimously by the house republicans. i do think that this debate is a good one to have. what i don't see is the 2012 candidates coming forward on the republican side and saying, taking
. cut, cap and balance, a big victory for house republicans last night, but, you would not know it today watching the white house press briefing. we counted just two questions about the g.o.p. plan, one to ask if it was a waste of time versus 14 for the "gang of six" plan which the president favors. tim graham not surprised a media research center worker. you thing the media is pushing the president toward the democrat plan, right? >>guest: they are failing to explain what the republican plan is. that you could go back through the transcripts and try to find the network using the word "cut, cap and balance." this is something that the house republicans have been formulating almost virtual media silence. they do not feel it is necessary to describe what it is but to just begin by announcing when it actually passes they say it is a failure and a waste of time. it is quite extraordinarily. >>stuart: some of the language they are using it calling it the ill fated cut, cap and balance, and those words tend to be attached to cut, cap and balance. ill fated was in "the hill," and there are othe
a mustache [pop] lipstick >> greta: a very big disappointment for the prosecution. any regrets? meet the prosecutor you saw working tirelessly on the casey anthony murder trial. jeff ashton went on the record about the challenges he faced in his final case as a florida state prosecutor. jeff, thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> greta: i've won and also cases. it is tough to lose a case. even when you should, it? >> it is difficult to put that much time and energy into something, it is tough. >> greta: if the remains had been found in august, did any of your experts say they would have been any more powerful or more potent position to give you an opinion as to the cause of death? >> most of the experts have told us that in all likelihood, pardon me, by the beginning of july, the body was completely skeletonized. there might have been some difference in the evidence. essentially her body was in the form we saw it in december all the way back in late july, august. so it would have still been a skeleton at that point. >> greta: before judge and cindy took the stand and they may
